- For tips on how to defeat Cyndr, see the boss' page here.
- If you have killed Cyndr the Mountain Heart before (either in Normal mode or Hard mode), you don't need a quest to complete this dungeon. Simply enter the dungeon and complete it. The final boss will be Magmus instead of Cyndr, who breaks into Jellies when killed. All of those Magma Blisters must be killed before the Mountain Heart Chest will spawn.
- If you do not have the Heart of the Shiverpeaks quest, Budger Blackpowder is available to provide powder kegs for your party. He is located prior to the Cracked Walls on each level.

- Entrance from Bogroot Growths is far to the southwest of the entrance from the Battledepths, and the Bogroot path is much longer.

- This is the only dungeon that does not have an associated repeatable quest (excluding Zaishen Bounty quests).
